168 temporary workers sourced from the Expanded Public Works Program (EPWP) will be employed by the City of Cape Town to remove illegal graffiti from February to June this year.

Mayoral committee member for safety and security JP Smith said getting rid of gangster graffiti would help to restore dignity to many communities and instill a sense of pride.

Mr Smith said, “The City recognizes the value of public art and street artists as their work can inspire and provoke new thinking, it can beautify shared spaces, uplift communities and tells the rich stories of our history.”
